"Unnecessary or inappropriate use of spinal manipulation in the case of a small child might damage the child's cartilaginous growth centers. Backache is not common in small children and might be a sign of a potentially serious illness. There is no reason to believe that chiropractic adjustments are effective for treating such ailments as ear infection, colic, bedwetting, sleeping problems, asthma, eczema, and so on. While most ailments of this type in children are self-limiting, they should be treated by pediatricians and not by chiropractors." Samuel Homola, DC (Chirobase)
